Sound quality problems with VIA AC'97 on Mandrake 9.1
I'm running Linux Mandrake 9.1 on an Intel Celeron machine.
Mandrake has installed the VIA AC'97 soundcard and there is audio yet the quality is lacking. It produces more of a scratching sound with any of the programs, Xine, Real Player, MP3 player, etc. etc.
I've tried playing around with the different mixers but nothing has helped.
The audio works fine in XP and so I doubt any hardware problems.
If any further information is required, please feel free to ask.
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
